How Do Charter Schools Perform?

September 4, 2015
  • Understanding Performance Requires Continued Research

    Here are some of the questions that we are working with researchers to investigate:

    • What is the overall impact of charter schools on student achievement, high school graduation, college attendance, and college persistence? 
    • Why are effective charter schools succeeding?
    • How effective are charter schools at serving students with special needs and students who are learning English? 
    • Who is enrolling in virtual charter schools, and are these schools successful at helping students achieve? 
    • Are teachers who transfer to charter schools more effective in the charter school setting than they were in traditional public schools?
    • Are charter schools better at removing ineffective staff members than traditional schools? 
    • What are the pedagogical approaches that lead to student success?
